Trump Has Spent Nearly 300 hours in “Executive Time” in 3 Months

Written by SK Ashby

Based on detailed schedules of Trump's daily routine obtained by Axios, we can say that Trump spends almost as much time watching TV and tweeting as many people spend doing their actual jobs.

We already knew that Trump spends the first half of each day in "Executive Time" where he eats, watches TV, and tweets from the private residence above the Oval Office, but Trump's full schedule puts that into perspective by showing how much more time he spends watching TV than doing literally anything else.

Since Nov. 7, the day after the midterm elections, Trump has spent around 297 hours in Executive Time, according to the 51 private schedules we've obtained.

For those same schedules, Trump has had about 77 hours scheduled for meetings that include policy planning, legislative strategy and video recordings.

Some days, Executive Time totally predominates. For instance, he had 1 hour of scheduled meetings on Jan. 18 (with acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin) and 7 hours of Executive Time.

I have mixed feelings about this.

On one hand, Trump doesn't do shit.

On the other hand, Trump doesn't do shit -- and that's great!

How many more things could he ruin if he spent less time watching TV? We should all be careful what we wish for and wishing Trump would spend less time eating cheeseburgers in front of Fox News could be dangerous.
